    I have a bracket I made 5(?) years ago, that I painted with an OTC blue paint (Target, K-Mart; something). I just went out and put it on my Syncro; it's a little light. But, in a dark corner, it would be hard for anyone to tell the difference. Next to another Miller, it might show up. And any one of the guys on this site would b!tch you right out.

    Fab,

    The 12oz spray can part number is correct and can still be purchased through any Miller Distributor. The quart can was recently discontinued but Dupont now has it available through their distributors. The Dupont paint code for it is C5885.

    take a panel off your welder and take it to a car paint store.They will computer analyze the color after buffing and mix the exact color.I used hardener in mine and it looks factory. My local Car Quest now has miller blue in the computer.They also have disposable aerosol cans that attach to a glass cup to spray with if you dont have a gun.I have 25 dollars in paint,reducer and hardener.

    If you want the right color I would go the Dupont route unless it is just touchup then get a few spraybombs
